Off on my way: in transition to Washington, DC
I'm pleased to announce that I will be joining the staff of the National Anthropological Archives and Human Studies Film Archives of the Smithsonian Institution's Department of Anthropology as a project archivist. I will have two initial primary responsibilities:
- cataloging Plains Indian ledger art for the non-profit ARTstor Project,
- and original cataloging and bibliographic enhancement of audio, film and video collections in support of the NAA's new Endangered Languages Program. This program also collaborates with the University of Utah's Center for American Indian Languages and is also part of the Documenting Endangered Languages project, supported by the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
I will be starting work for the NAA/HSFA on September 6, 2005, and will be working on a 12 month term contract.
